Alterations to include restoration of existing window frames and replacement/draughtproofing of sash windows with 4mm clear single glazed toughened glass Replacement of non-original skirting to original bull nose style (retaining the original skirting (where present)) in MDF Replacement of non-original architraves to OG style from MDF construction Replacement of non-original plain doors throughout the flat to traditional ‘Victorian shaker style’ 4 panel fire doors.
We note that the proposed front and rear dormers are not original to the building and are in poor condition and the principle of replacement is therefore acceptable and necessary.
In light of the current Climate Emergency, BPT feels this could be a positive opportunity for the integration of slimlite glazing without the loss of historic glazing. The existing dormer windows are tucked into the roof behind the parapet, and are therefore more visually discreet within public views than the more visually significant examples of glazing within the main body of the building. BPT has previously encouraged similar opportunities for energy retrofits at 7 Duke Street (19/04678/LBA) and 3 Lansdown Place East (20/00024/LBA).
The use of slimlite glazing would therefore improve the building’s thermal and acoustic performance with limited harm to the special architectural and historic interest of a listed building.
